House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Aromatherapy

Now, I am mostly a weekend stamper, so I generally "squeek" in on the House Mouse Monday Challenge. I love to color and most HM stamps are pretty much all coloring and don't really require much else going on with the rest of the card. I think their images most definitely take center stage. The challenge this week is SPRINGTIME and what could be more spring like than lilacs?

I colored this image with copics as well as prisma's/oms.

Oh I can see why this stamp was named Aromatherapy! I can just smell the lilacs outside! (a big sniff here LOL)

This is so adorable - it has to be one of my favorite House Mouse images I've seen - I just love lilacs! I miss them so much, we had them in Michigan but they don't exist in Texas! Your coloring is beautiful!
